    Good fuck off. Hope we keep going. My job requires me to still work, so as far as I’m concerned footy should continue

    Whilst they will feel the financial hit, they can probably afford/ survive a 2 month suspension , as their administrators have proven to be more competent than those running the NRL .

    May as well just shut down the NRL now since it's really boring to watch without the crowds, can't believe the NRL didn't budget for a crisis.

    Other than when conversations are happening I completely forget the no crowd thing.

    I think this has all been an unintentional success considering the situation.

    AFL overdid it imo. They could have played it by ear, week to week proposition. They didnt need to commit to 2 month straight up imo. Not yet anyway.

    Agree, absolute overkill and knee jerk reactions bowing down to false media public pressure!

    Not too much spoken about Western Bulldogs vice captain. Drink driving, supposed to be in isolation like everyone else. Also smashed four parked cars. Gee they defend there players like nothing else that game. We go the opposite way

    How good is it watching the nrl lead the afl for once. Watching there game blow up that we’re leading the way to resumption of play, leaving them behind. Hopefully we can get a couple of unrivalled weeks, that would be perfect

    They'll never take over AFL supporters down in Melbourne.

    Remember back in 2010 when the salary cap crisis hit the Storm? They had fans turns up on disgust and dump all their Storm memorabilia at the doorstep of the club in disgust. What happened when we had our drama in 2002? the fans turned up to the Leagues club wearing their jerseys with pride and rallied in support of our club.

    That's the difference!
